Should I use cement board siding?
My husband and I are in the market to reside our home. We have the contractor chosen, but we cannot agree on the type of siding. I would truly prefer a Hardy Board or cement board product and he wants to replace our siding with aluminum (what we currently have). We hear some many mixed reviews on cement board, that I do not want to push the issue of this product and be totally disgusted with it in five years. I have taken a fairly large triangle size piece and put it in a bucket of water for a week. Removed it, hit against a hard object, and it was in the same condition, no cracking or peeling, as when I originally put it in the bucket. Your comments please!
